You will need:
- a bowl to use as a mold, another for making glue
- newspaper or paper scraps
- plastic wrap
Step 2: Take a bowl and mix 1 part flour with 2 parts water. Stir it into a gloopy glop. Here is the point where I should remind you to have a workspace that is covered with newspaper or something.
Step 3: Cover your mold bowl in saran wrap.
Step 4: Dip your strips of paper into the flour/water mix. Slap those puppies onto your saran wrap covered bowl.
Step 5: Once the entire bowl has a couple of layers of paper on it use your hands to press down and let the excess liquid seep out.
Step 6: Set the covered bowl(s) aside and let them dry for a few days, depending upon how wet it may take a little time. They dry faster in an area with good air circulation.
Step 7: Once dry pull the bowls out of the mold, carefully. Trim off the excess paper. You could get creative and use paper punches or anything to give the bowl an awesome edge.
Step 8: Paint
